Nice deck over the water and decent, but not outstanding food. One black mark, however, was the re-heated frozen veggies, especially in summer, when fresh are so easily available. Service was... lackluster. No serious complaints, but also no praise. The live music, uh... got better...More

Wanda was the best, funniest waitress. She gave us suggestions where to visit while in the area. Was great looking out over the ocean while enjoying our food.

Stopped In for lunch and had a great order of fish bites and fries. Don't expect fast food but the attentive service, the quality of the food and the view make up for it. Glad we stopped. Would definitely go back again.

Went there to try the local beer and ended up having an early dinner fish and chips and their IPA beer. Good and the service was very good.
